Delivery-only restaurant brands see pandemic-fueled growth

Josh Phillips, the co-owner of Espita, a stylish Mexican restaurant, displays a Ghostburger at his restaurant in downtown Washington, Monday, Feb. 15, 2021. Phillips opened a delivery-only brand called Ghostburger in August to keep Espita’s kitchen running through the winter. He chose burgers because he wanted to reach new customers at a lower price point than Espita. It’s been so successful that Phillips is now scouting for locations for standalone Ghostburger restaurants.
